It ain't the Helmsley, but it is a wonderful little slice of old Florida right on the beach. Simple efficiency units with kitchen facilities perfect for family's and family's with pets. Clean, a pool, right on the beach. You will smile when you are lying on the beach with 10 other families and you look over 400 fy down the... More

I was kind of leary at the first sight of the hotel. It does not have much curb appeal, but boy am I glad I looked passed that! It was such a great place! The receptionist at check in and the other one at check out were both so super kind! Very informational and they served us with great big... More

Many write what a gem ... You read exagerated reviews in one or the other way. I was not sure what to think but we made our booking and here is my recent experience: - great value/money considering prices you can expect in this location - property relatively older but so are other ones around - clean - one of...

We stayed at Coquina after reading reviews and were pleasantly surprised. It was better than anticipated. Friendly staff. great location, good sized rooms. If you want brand new fancy hotel on the beach, its not, but it is a great old style clean and roomy place right on the beach. I would highly recommend it to all.

I have been staying here since 1973 when I was five years old. Still one of my favourite little motels to stay in anywhere. We usually stay in the beachview rooms and have a great stay. Unfortunately, we got stuck in that stupid snowstorm in Buffalo and had to cancel our reservations a couple of weeks back. Once we escaped... More

I have reviewed this hotel and gave it a great review. We have been staying at this resort for 30 or more years. When we were there in June, we stayed in a patio room. It met all of our needs and remained one of our top Lido hotels. We got a poolside room last month. I was very disappointed.... More

We four college pals have been meeting here for 10 years for our annual reunion. Coquina meets our needs perfectly --- 2 connecting rooms each with 2 beds and bath, kitchenette, beach front with chairs and towels. The rooms are a bit dated and "tired" but clean, spacious. Each year the management shows it is updating bit by bit. We'll... More

The rooms have been updated since our last stay and are spacious and comfortable. Our room was an efficiency on the first floor with direct access to the beach. The... More

My husband and I went for a get away weekend and found this little gem in Sarasota on Lido beach. The hotel is small and clean even if a little outdated in decor... Our room was very spacious and the staff was so welcoming. The location is within a mile-ish of the famous St Armand's Circle which is full of... More
